standard 1 week extension for W3C RDF Validation Workshop submissions

From: Eric Prud'hommeaux <eric@w3.org>
Date: Sat, 29 Jun 2013 11:17:32 -0400
To: semantic-web@w3.org, public-lod@w3.org, public-ldp@w3.org
Message-ID: <20130629151731.GA5033@w3.org>
We got lots of requests for extension and the amicable PC have opted
to give *everyone* an extension. I'd like to hear more domain-specific
use cases, e.g. clinical, financial, though of course tooling and
technology submissions are welcome as well. Please see
for inspiration or fodder.

I've been trying to keep http://www.w3.org/2012/12/rdf-val/SOTA up to
date with respect to comments and suggestions. Please let me know if
you think other technologies should be represented or if you can
supplement it with nice examples of existing tech. I'd also like to
hear from those who work with schema languages for other models,
e.g. RelaxNG, to hear what use cases motivated what features.

Please forward to any potentially interested parties. Thanks!

> W3C's hosting a workshop on interface definitions for RDF data.
> If you want to tell users how to use some RDF service, or find out how
> to use an existing service, you need some mechanism for defining
> interfaces. If you then want to mechanically complete client data or
> validate graphs posted to a service, you need a tool which exploits
> that mechanism. In either case, please help us meet your needs by
> submitting use cases and proposals to the W3C RDF Validation Workshop.
> If you've got great ideas for languages or re-use of existing tools to
> solve these sorts of use cases, you may want to submit those as well.
> Please read through the CFP and send any questions or comments to me
> (eric@w3.org) or the PC (group-rdf-val-pc@w3.org). If you think this
> should go to other lists, please forward. Thanks!
>      RDF Validation Workshop - Practical Assurances for Quality RDF Data
>      10-11 September 2013, Cambridge, MA, USA
>      <http://www.w3.org/2012/12/rdf-val/>
> While the Semantic Web has demonstrated considerable value for
> collaborative contributions to data, adoption in many mission-critical
> environments requires data to conform to specified patterns. This need
> for interface defintions spans domains. For instance, validation in a
> banking context shares many requirements with quality assurance of
> linked clinical data. Systems like Linked Open Data, which don't have
> formal interface specifications, share these validation
> needs. Development of standards and tools to meet these requirements
> can greatly increase the utility and ubiquity of Semantic Web data.
> Most data representation languages used in conventional settings offer
> some sort of input validation, ranging from parsing grammars for
> domain-specific languages to XML Schema, RelaxNG or Schematron for XML
> structures. While the distributed nature of RDF affects the notions of
> "validity", tool chains need to be established to publish interface
> definitions and ensure data integrity.
> This workshop combines discussion of use cases for data
> validation/interface defintion on the Semantic Web with development of
> technologies to enable those use cases.
> If you are interested in presenting, please submit a position paper by 
> 30 June 2013. If you need a short extension, please contact the PC.
> See additional Workshop details and submission instructions:

> The workshop is hosted by MIT. For further details, please contact Eric
